If anyone has photos of Ritch can you please send them to me at brian@bclionsden.ca? His therapist has requested photos of Ritch doing various things.

Thanks, and pass this on wherever you can.

Well Ritch should respond well to the news of Caseymania returning to the Lions. :beer: Still praying for you Ritch, got to keep the faith.

The trial isn't even scheduled to start until next July.
Sports can be a peculiar thing. When partaking in fiction, like a book or movie, we adopt a "Willing Suspension of Disbelief" for enjoyment's sake. There's a similar force at work in sports: "Willing Suspension of Rationality". If you doubt this, listen to any conversation between rival team fans. You even see it among fans of the same team. Fans argue over who's the better QB or goalie, and selectively cite stats that support their views while ignoring those that don't.

Our justice system is not delivering justice it seems. That is absolutely and completely ridiculous. Scandalous. There is no reason for delaying a trial other than to wait it out and see if the witnesses are all dead by then or moved to far off places.

If the justice system was the way everyone wanted it , it would cost 5 times what it does now. Just like healthcare costs if everyone in BC had a doctor.

Ritch was out at the Lions practice today, nice to see him giving his support to Casey's arrival.

Seriously? He's able to get out every now and again from his rehabilitation?

Good to hear.

Well, the timing could not have been better. We had been planning a visit to practice for Ritch for about a month and chose today as the day. Little did we know it would be Casey's first practice with the Lions.

I was there to witness the events, and have compiled a story and a photo album on my site. I encourage you all to leave comments for Ritch and the family.

Please note I'll have to approve your comment as the blog is set to only auto post comments from those who have a previously approved comment. So please be patient of your comment doesn't show up right away.

Thanks Brian. It's encouraging to see the progress Ritch has made. Great blog post and great pictures.

Thinking along the lines of support as Champion mentioned. Is there a forum that could be named after 3rd? I'm sure that has probably been bandied about but he did post in alot of places I think. It seems only fitting that something be named after him in his honour. Perhaps it already has?
